there was no brady bill. it took another election. the election of 1992, in which sarah brady, a life-long republican, the daughter of that fbi agent, she supported the democrat, bill clinton. she supported him because he supported the brady bill. and in the fall of clinton's first year in office, with clinton's party in control of the house and of the senate, it actually happened. >> in the east room of the white house today, it was not just an ordinary presidential ceremony, the end of a long road for jim and sarah brady, parents of the brady bill. >> that was a road more than 12 years long. but at last gun control supporters could smile. the brady bill was now law. >> and now we're here to tell the nra that their nightmare is true, we're back. we're not going away after brady. we have a lot to do. >> chuck schumer, a much younger congressman chuck schumer back then and wasn't entirely wrong when he said that. congress did pass and clinton did sign an assault weapons ban months later. when they lost in a landslide in the 1994 midterms, many democrats blamed their gun activism for it. they did so ag
much time worrying about the next election and not the generation. the solution to that is ultimately what was envisioned by our founders. and what jack kennedy understood as well. and that's the american people. we go through these periods where our politics gets all bollucks up. the truth is when you look at our history, there's been a lot of times where congress gets stuck. but the reason we get through it is the american people have good instincts. if over and over again they see we're not addressing the core problems we have, eventually they will put in place folks who are serious about getting the work done. >> let's talk about the problem with the legislative branch. the other day speaker boehner said that we can't get anything done because we have a divided country, a divided congress. but that's the nature of america. they have an aisle down the middle of the senate. an aisle down the middle of the house. they've always been there. we've rarely had one party in power for more than a year or two. so we stuck with this as long as we have two parties running our government, they
in paris. the french president is calling for elections by 2015 to remove rebels who took control earlier this year. much of the u.s. is in the grip of a freezing. four homeless people froze to death. in california the ploughs can hardly keep up with the snow. the cold snap made driving dangerous, including the midwest. by inch. 4 numbers of in blooming tonne in indiana. snow and ice in the mid-atlantic. washington d.c. will be under a 24 hour storm watch. it is cold out there, and it looks like it will get colder. >> it's weather fit for polar bears and penn gins. the air is breaking out across the area. let's start where the storm begins, which is west coast. this storm is making its way over to the east coast, impacting the spire united states. we had wind gusts 36 miles per hour in san francisco. doesn't sound like much, but they have gotten a polar snap. it's 39 for vegas. it's not quite freezing, but we have the freezing temperatures to the north central area, and we'll be below freezing in california. i don't think there'll be much dreaming going on, there's be a lot of heaters cli
victory? next year's congressional elections. let's find out. robert gibbs is a political analyst and former press secretary under president obama. and david corn is an msnbc political analyst and washington bureau chief at mother jones. robert, you know better about him than most people. you've worked with him in tight situations. i hope you got to see our program last night. we had a huge audience of 1.3 million. >> i did. >> i mean, it's a very big audience of people who tuned in just to hear the president. even on a night when so many hearts and minds were focused on the lives of nelson mandela. they took some time out to watch our program with the president. he said at that time when i asked him how do you do big deals and he said history says you only get a big program through, something really important, when one party controls the government. the house, the senate, and the presidency. does that mean to you he's still holding out hopes he can pull a big upset in the sixth year of his presidency next november? >> well, i was certainly struck by the answer in which he was rem
the mandate of a popular election as the only appointed president, almost a president with an asterisk next to his name. >> she may have supported his bid for the white house but when they first met she didn't know she was getting a politician. is that true? >> that's what she says. it's hard for me to believe she was totally naive. jerry ford was the big man on campus. the local hero from high school days playing football. it's not terribly surprising he should decide to go into public life. but there is no doubt she was surprised. they were married in october 1948. >> and on twitter did the ford's schedule their wedding for october 15 after the republican congressional primary and why? >> the simple answer is yes. have you to know west michigan to appreciate. west michigan more than now was a very culturally conservative place. a place where the dutch reform church held sway. and ford who was certainly a conservative ff nevertheless was running against an entrenched republican incumbent who opposed the mar alcohol plan. he was one of those returning veterans who had seen the consequences
calm. >> translator: i hope the country will elect a new president and a new noble president, people who will serve this country properly and i hope the blood of our people won't be spilled. >> they want the resignation of yanukovych. they now face a deadline to leave by tuesday morning. no one's in a mood to give in. >> translator: i want a new government that listens to the people and doesn't treat us like animals. >> we are here to fight for our rights so that our kids are brought up in a good country without corruption and where everything's fair. >> yanukovych believes he has enough support to survive with backing from moscow. the protestors realize that this crisis has now reached a crucial moment. tim friend, al jazeera, kiev. >> robin forster walker is in kiev. what reeks from the government so far? >> the government released a statement earlier the spokesperson for the security services has been warning of a criminal investigation into politicians seeking to overthrow the state and that could carry up to ten years in jail, a ten year jail sentence. no names were mentioned
for the democratic party can win elections outside of massachusetts, and is this an active debate for the democratic coalition now? >> ok, so when you poll the public on things like education, jobs -- people want good jobs. people want the american dream. if you look at doug sosnik's recent blog post, which i think was not in "atlantic" but in "politico"? sorry. i think it is totally right that one of the great unifying factors in this country was if you work hard, and play by a set of fairness rules, you should do ok. and our guidepost was -- are our kids, the next generation, are they doing better than we are? that has changed. and people are really anxious about that. they want to work hard and they want to do ok. so i think there is -- when i looked at the elections, in 2013, chris christie won in new jersey, that is true, but so did minimum wage expansion. terry mcauliffe won in virginia, walsh in boston, deblasio in new york. toledo, the person who was pro- public education -- >> could you speak up? >> sorry. the person who was pro-education won. so there is something going on in the country t
town hall meetings for the midterm elections in 2010. and so you allow people to organize and get these groups out there, that were there to just obstruct. what you need to do is do small group meetings. start with your base, start with women's organizations and use your best weapon. michelle obama. >> i love that. stick with me, because we'll have robert gibbs when we come back, and i want to ask about who would be the effective surrogates here. i love the idea of first lady obama out there sort of selling this law, but i wonder if there are some real challenges in making that happen. stick with us, we are bringing robert gibbs into the discussion next. when it's donut friday at the office, i use my citi thankyou card to get 2x the points at the coffee shop. which will help me get to a beach in miami and they'll be stuck at the cube farm. the citi thankyou preferred card. now earn 2x the points dining out, with no annual fee. go to citi.com/thankyoucards she pretty much lives in her favorite princess dress. and she's not exactly tidy. even if she gets a stain she'll wear it for a
a tumultuous runup to the elections. knowing where he was going and being a very steady hand and voice of reason through what was a very turbulent time in the runup to the election. >> voice of reason, stan greenberg. you worked with him during his election. for a man who became known for the power of forgiveness and reconciliation. as a politician, he also had something of a ruthless streak. >> absolutely. he had clear goals. one of the thing that ran through was the desire to make sure there was racially inclusive politics. there were strong strands within the anc, within south africa, that were centered on black consciousness. he was intent on having an election with mandate that reduced their role. he focused on, as you know, the pan african congress, polling 2% or 3% of the poll. historically, they played a big role in africa and the liberation struggle. he wanted to use the election to send a message this would be an inclusive country. >> and jendayi frazer. talking about the relationship with people he didn't necessarily get along with. we know f.w. de klerk. they shared a nobel
this a high enough priority and 70% of americans support sometime if of commission on the line. the election in massachusetts wasn't a victory for public and. it was a life and independent. i've seen it coming and i've been in 46 states i think i have a very good sense. they are in the sensible center and representatives on the holes. that's why we not only have the partisanship that an ideological divide that creates a stalemate and the stalemate means that you are going nowhere fast and when things are wrong they g takeoveh patches of time. that's a disaster this scenario. so i think washington is an indicator and congress as an indicator within washington and the people basically have to put the pressure for this thing to happen. and a commission has to set the table for a tougher vot the tous because let me tell you taxes are going up and they are going up about what people than those making $250,000 a year. why? a very simple four letter word. math. in addition to social insurance contract is going to get renegotiated to make sure that when the government has a price they can deliver on
as mandela. >> simon: national elections were held. the man who had spent 27 years in prison was now a presidential candidate. >> we are one country. we are one people. i cherish the idea of a new south africa. >> simon: april 26, 1994. it's difficult for anyone born in a democracy to so much as imagine the thrill of putting a ballot in a box. >> i slept with my i.d. under my pillow so that i musn't forget it. how long have we been waiting! >> i'm going to vote, for the first time, as a black man. >> it was amazing. to see hundreds and thousands of people who had never cast a vote before waiting in long lines, people shouting for joy. that sense of happiness, that sense of freedom, that sense of liberation. >> for the people of south africa, this is indeed a joyous night for the human spirit. >> simon: there was no suspense election night. mandela won by a landslide, as everyone knew he would.

of obamacare. income inequality was enough to get the yor of new york elected. >> income inequality is a reality. you can't argue about it. it is deningng. the realality is, first of all that the financial sector of the country has gotten bigger and more important anand has bier slice of thehe pie. basilly we are responsible for alall of the pain and all of the dislocation american suffered in the financial crisis and d has done this well since that time. the median incncome, household income, has leveled off or even fallen. the president t is speing the truth. one could say because of health care, whwhatever. this is the central question of our time. if you take american mobility, which s fallen, that somebody born to deprivation, the opportunity and education to rise, we are less abable to do that then were. we have to reclaim that appeared -- that. >> i think we have to back to something else, obama took office and literally wasted two years doing almost nothing while median income went down. seems to me he took office at a time when we were in a recession. and that efforts to
to elections are held and tell us a little about some of the of the issues that the leaders they are going to be discussing summary of the topics well security has really been central to the summit and that the focus is very much been on this rapid response force that can be put together by the african union to sustain in the pipeline for about five years but coming along very slowly. ideally this would be a force of about thirty two thousand five hundred troops under the auspices of the african union and instead of countries like france having to step in in these situations they can deploy that false very quickly. but that has been a lot of progress a lot of talk in the parking deck can be up and running a bike two thousand and fifteen on top of that they've been discussing piracy in counterterrorism. but today the focus is very much home try. and there are a delegation of about five hundred french business people here is a perception that europe is full and very much behind in the present china has swept cars to europe when it comes to trade and investment in africa. and i and there is i
it was a very big public boycott of the election and we saw police beating down demonstrators and the brutality of that government and there was in return a response to the united states. that rekindled the anti-apartheid movement in this country. it started small and grew and grew. on the berkley campus it went from a handful of students to being thousands of students and faculty and staff and i. >> were you having conversations with your parents explaining to your parents why you were doing this? >> many of us did. particularly when we were arrested and we were seen on tv confronting the police. these were tense times and it was a bit different from the 60's. it was different in that ours was a movement in solidarity with the people in south africa. we were keenly aware we had our own issues namely racism and other oppression, we were focused on south africa and the university's invotemen investme. and many of us didn't want to distract by making it police brutality and keep the focus on south africa. we managed to keep it prod and managed to prevent the pola polarzation that you saw on many
party resigned from parliament today. the party says the elected government is no longer accepted by the people. at least five people have been killed and hundreds injured since massive anti-government protests began last month. demonstrators have called on the prime minister to resign. protesters in kiev knocked down a statue of vladimir lenin as outrage mounted against the government's suspension of talks with the european union. numerous statues of lenin have been removed from kiev. this is the third straight week of protests in ukraine. al jazeera's tim friend has more. >> reporter: they poured into independence square in the thousands. they know this demonstration has to be big and loud to sustain the pressure on president yanukovych. on the edge of the crowd, young men prepared tactics for the worst outcome, another violent confrontation with riot police. a few streets away, squads of officers lined up in front of presidential office. last week there was chaos here, many people injured in a police charge. now there's a standoff. riot police at the ready at one end of the str
. after eisenhower was elected president in november of 1952, he immediately took off to play golf in augusta, and let clay and brownell turn -- turned the selection of his cabinet to clay and brownell, because he knew these people and recognized their talent and their ability and he understood they no. knew more about who should be in the cabinet perhaps than he did because he had been in nato for the previous here to years. so eisenhower was a superb judge of talent and learned that through his military career. >> i would say amplifying that, that is probably his most important political contribution as president. dwight eisenhower was a republican and proud of being a republican, and he believed in limited government but he was governing in a democratic era. he was governing in the fdr era, so what the eisenhower administration does politically, it applies the brakes to overreaching and ratifies and in fact makes bipartisan many policies of the new deal, but applies the brakes on others, but it's not an aggressive administration presenting a republican blueprint and driving for
, what we're asking for is elected leaders and other civic leaders to endorse the boycott of center plate and food and beverage at the ballpark. >> i have a question. >> supervisor cohen? >> thank you. so, what i heard from a lot of the workers, boycott, to me, that means if i'm at the ballpark, don't buy food, it's as simple as that? >> it's that simple but there's a lofted of eventess, a big part of center plate's income comes from catering events, and so they have all kinds of events, you know, not just during the games but during the off season and when the games aren't being played, so we're asking people to boycott those catered events as well. >> this also includes candle stick? >> no, we're not boy contending -- boycotting the food at candle stick. >> center plate is also -- the contracts with candle stick, it would be contracted within the new stadium, so in my opinion, if we're looking at a larger issue about workers, we're talking about, yes, they may not be in the city and county of san francisco but maybe going down to santa clara county. >> they've been rewarded with that,
